Nominated by Mentors School

All 2022 Children’s Peace Prize Nominees

Shajid spent his childhood in the village, where most children grow up with difficulties. Most of them do not have access to advanced education because their family were unable to meet their basic needs due to financial difficulties. After a while, he moved to the city. Nevertheless, he noticed that many families there could also not afford sending their children to school. As a result, he started a business for education. He established Mentors School where free tuitions are provided to the students. In the future, he would like to spread his activities to every corner of the country. He wants no children to drop out of school due to poverty. And he wants to make sure that every person in the country is interested in educating their children.
